Samsung X11 review notebook performance benchmark

A representative of the new generation of Samsung notebooks, the Centrino Duo-based X11 follows the X1 model in exterior design:

samsung x11overview

The color scheme of the new model just copies the X1, but this is the only thing they have in common. The X11 is a classically designed notebook you don’t have to get used to after you’ve switched to it from some other model. When closed, the X11 is a copy of the X1:

It is just a little thicker. It may seem strange, but the thicker X11 looks somewhat more appealing than the X1 while the extra centimeter of thickness brings the user quite an advanced configuration: a full-featured Intel Core Duo processor (T2300), a most recent mobile hardware platform, a 100GB hard disk drive, and a discrete last-generation graphics controller from Nvidia (GeForce Go 7400 TC). I guess all this makes up with interest for the slight increase in the notebook’s thickness.

Well, if you are not comparing the two models side by side, you don’t immediately see that the X11 is thicker, especially from the front:

Just like the X1, this model has nothing except a card-reader on its front panel. It’s the rear view that betrays that the notebook has got fatter:

The X1 was no thicker than its battery, but this model has about 5 millimeters above and below the battery. All the connectors are on the sides of the case. The connectors on the left panel are almost the same as on the X1’s one…

…except that there’s no USB port here and the speakers are in their usual place. But the power adapter connector is in the screen hinge:

samsung x11 usb

That’s an original and convenient solution, at least it’s easy to connect the power adapter by touch. The left panel carries an optical drive, the three available USB ports, and video output.

You can use only one of them at a time unless you attach standard connectors.

The keyboard is ordinary:

samsung x11 keyboard

No innovations here, it is quite comfortable in use, but the additional keys near the arrows surprised me somewhat:

Well, I can understand they just found no other place for the Context Menu button, but the additional Fn key should be there to allow you to adjust the screen brightness and sound volume with one hand. But however I tried I couldn’t figure out how to put my fingers down to use this key comfortably. Maybe you’ll find the answer to this riddle?

Keyboard status, HDD and WLAN activity indicators are on the right:

There are two LED indicators on the front panel: Power and Battery Charge.

The touchpad is classic, with a large sensitive area, a vertical scrolling zone and big handy buttons that feel nice to the touch:

Samsung seems to be very fond of stickers:

samsung x11 sticker

The first sticker reports that the notebook is equipped with a Bluetooth 2.0+EDR adapter; the last two are obligatory. As for the Nvidia logotype, there’s nothing to boast about because the GeForce Go 7400 TC cannot compete even with good old X600/X700 not to mention the mobile 6600 Go with its nearly ideal price/performance ratio. The reason is simple: all these graphics adapters have dedicated graphics memory rather than eat some from system RAM. However good a graphics core may be, its advantages are all negated by its using slow system memory.

I’ve said everything about the display in the previous section because the X11 produces the same picture as the X1. The X11 suits for office work quite well, but if you compare it with the leaders of today’s tests, the difference is striking. Well, even without any comparisons, it’s no fun to view photographs on either of the two Samsungs.

The bracket of the lid lock looks cute here:

The battery is simply a joke:

samsung x11 battery

It’s the same reduced-capacity battery the X1 comes with, but the X1 was equipped with an ultra low voltage Pentium M and had a much more modest configuration. When used in an X11, this battery is more like an integrated UPS than a mobile power source. I wonder if additional batteries will be included in mass-shipped versions of the X11, because without them it is sort of transportable desktop notebook.

The conclusion is this: the X11 is a good notebook designed by the classic guidelines, but equipped with a low-capacity battery and not the best of displays. Regrettably, Samsung positions this model quite high, so you cannot expect it to come at a modest price. Considering this, I can’t recommend it for purchase. The company may try to make it more appealing by including a normal battery and putting an appropriate price tag that would make up for the low display quality. I wouldn’t hope much for that, though.


First I checked the notebooks in Business Winstone 2004 and Content Creation Winstone 2004 benchmarks

The results of the Photoshop CS are indicative of the overall performance of the CPU, platform and hard drive:

The well-balanced LW40 is almost as fast as the two notebooks on the new platform. Other notebooks are slower. The two slowest models shouldn’t be used to run such applications at all – they are only capable of performing office tasks like processing text and spreadsheets, browsing the Web, etc.

The next test shows what you can expect from these notebooks in gaming applications:

Samsung X113dmark benchmark

performed this test using the maximum display resolution of each notebook, except for the LG T1 (I used 1280x800 with it because 1440x900 would have been too much for its integrated graphics core). The Acer TravelMate 3222WXMi is the best and can cope with modern games if you don’t use the highest graphics quality settings. Among other notebooks, only models with the X600 are interesting. The Samsung X11 is second after the TravelMate 3222WXMi but I doubt it’s going to be that fast in real games.

I also published the results of the CPU subtest to show you that 3DMark03 favors the Centrino Core Duo platform. This is indicated by the Samsung X11’s results. This platform is the most promising one when it comes to games, considering that all the leading game developers have confirmed support for dual-core processors in their upcoming products.

And now, the results of the most important test:

Samsung X11  battery life

I put the results the notebooks achieved in Reader’s mode and under maximum load into one diagram because the difference between the two is indicative of how well the manufacturer set up the power-saving parameters. The Sony VGN-FJ1SR looks best here as it yields you its full computing power under max load but is very economical in Reader’s mode. Besides the Sony, there are two more leaders: LG’s T1 with a high-capacity battery and an L series Core Duo processor which features low power consumption, and ASUS W3H00V. The latter proved to be a bit of a cheater, though. Even under max load with the portable/laptop power management scheme selected this notebook never increased its CPU frequency higher than 1.3GHz.

It’s all clear with the first two diagrams, but then there are some things I’d want to single out. The LW40 is very fast in the memory test; it’s the best Centrino-based notebook I’ve seen in this benchmark. The Acer TravelMate 3222WXMi is unrivalled in the graphics subsystem test just because it has the fastest graphics adapter among the tested notebooks.

Nvidia’s GeForce Go 7400 is downright disappointing. If you need fast graphics, buy a notebook that has dedicated graphics memory. Graphics subsystems of other kind (with such suffixes as TC, HM) are not much better than integrated graphics and cannot ensure high performance in 3D. In the disk subsystem test the notebooks rank up according to the spindle rotation speed of the hard drive they use.
